Hi my name is (your name) and I am calling from (your city/town).
Is there someone I can talk to about legislation I support?
I am calling about the effort to amend the existing expungement law so that it is more accessible to young people in Massachusetts.
Criminal records stay with people forever and prevent many from getting good jobs and a good education. They also have a very negative impact on mental health and they particularly hurt communities of color.
I know that Senator Creem and Representatives Decker and Khan have sponsored legislation to do this and I'd really appreciate your support too - especially now as the State House is focusing on racial justice legislation.
Will you reach out to leadership to let them know you support our call to make the expungement law more accessible before the July 31st deadline?
This issue is very important to me. Thank you for your consideration!
